Dear Precious Dads and Supporters,

WHAT YOU MUST KNOW (DETAILED INSIDE)

You are not alone in your futile search to find any


justice or fairness in the corrupt, greedy, and sexist
divorce courts.

1. It has been scientifically proven that shared parenting

Most divorces are filed by women who break up the


family and expect men to pay the entire price. They
know the divorce courts will give them custody and
exorbitant child support (child extortion). This
often places fathers in immediate poverty and
intentionally criminalizes them with impossible
orders that land them in jail for divorce. It is
ironic that, while most every father would gladly
give their lives for their children, the father must
dramatically change his life to support a child that has effectively been removed from
his life and changed into nothing other than a visitor .
Deadbeat dads are really beat-dead dads while many mothers become malicious
and vengeful, coveting the children and assets, and even alienating the children from
their own loving father. The courts do not see this because men (judges) naturally
protect women and women cry victim. Judges are still living in the 1950s. Obsolete
traditions overrule common sense, fairness, and real scientific proof now available that
says shared parenting is best for children. About 300 fathers of divorce silently commit
suicide every month as a result of the overwhelming pain, pressure, and prejudice.
Hundreds of thousands of fathers, second wives, and grandparents are uniting across
the United States (and the world) to fight the tyranny that is our family court system.
Millions of fathers, and even some mothers, are fed up with these sexist and out-oftouch judges who abuse their power and the complicit and unethical lawyers who profit
from this intentionally unfair system. There is a conspiracy of silence to protect this
evil money machine that is damaging generations of children.
Overzealous states and judges go far beyond their legal powers by taking away our
children, our homes, and our income, effectively making men economic slaves to exwives and stealing their children to boot. The state does not own our children or get to
control them just because we divorce. Under the consitution and U.S. Supreme court
rulings, parental rights can only be terminated when a parent is proven unfit. This is
what the highest law of the land, the U.S. Constitution (14th amendment) clearly
states.
We demand total reform of this broken, cruel system that intentionally inflicts damage
on our children and us for the profit of lawyers and the state coffers and for the
convenience and power trips of judges. It is corrupt and it must be fixed for the
benefit of our children and generations of children to come."
There are nearly 20 million non-custodial parents in the U.S. today probably the
largest unrepresented voting block in the country. We are uniting to take back our
natural rights to our children, our homes, and our income that is being
unconstitutionally hijacked under the guise of best interests of the children. As you
will learn in this booklet - this is a big lie.

(with near equal time with each parent) is far superior in


nearly all respects for our children when compared to
sole physical custody and visitation. By many measures,
it is even 20 times better for children.

2. State divorce court judges act unconstitutionally when


they award unequal custody to mothers every day. This
is literally a crime by judges under the 14th Amendment
of the U.S. Constitution.

3. Judges assign custody in exactly the reverse order of


what is best for children due to sexist traditions,
conflicts of interest, and financial incentives through
child support collection and federal kickbacks. The
government actually has created many incentives to
separate fathers from their children.

4. Eighty-six percent of Massachusettss voters have voted


for shared parenting all districts polled. Yet it is not
already law due to this corrupt, moneymaking system
where lawyers want to collect 40% of your estate in
legal fees before your divorce is final and minority
extreme feminist groups have worked for decades to
strip men of their rights using domestic violence as the
excuse. The DV tail is now wagging the divorce dog!

5. Child support is actually child extortion and alimony.


It is often four to five times the actual cost of raising a
child and is nothing but ransom that fathers are forced
to pay, under threat of jail, by the kidnapper of their
children to their ex-wife. States make a PROFIT on this!

6. A typical lawyer will not represent men well because


most are unethical, ignorant and/or afraid to challenge
the judge they are beholden to for their income.

7. Impossible orders are illegal orders. Many orders issued


by judges are void with no legal effect or force because
judges ignore proper due process in family courts.
Judges are liable for damages whenever they act
without jurisdiction or due process. Know your rights.

8. The constitution of the United States and federal law


overrule any state statutes, and we have illegal state
statutes and practices.

BASIC DOS AND DONTS FOR FATHERS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL OPERATION OF THE FAMILY COURTS

Dont:








1.

The family courts are run unconstitutionally and illegally without


proper due process and without respecting the civil and constitutional
rights of citizens every day. Under the constitution and U.S. supreme court
case law, family court judges have no legal authority to assign custody of a
child or terminate any parental rights without clear and convincing evidence
(a high standard) that a parent is harmful to a child. A showing that a parent
is unfit is required to terminate any parental rights. In other words the
emperor is wearing no clothes and no one is calling them on it! Even if
unfitness is proven in the case of fundamental constitutional rights, judges
are required to take the minimum possible steps to protect the child without
infringing on these rights. Clearly this is not done with instant and boilerplate
visitation that essentially kidnap children from their fathers for profit.

2.

The "liberty interest of parents in the care, custody, and control of


their children is perhaps the oldest of the fundamental liberty
interests" recognized by the U.S. Supreme Court, Troxel v. Granville,
527 U.S. 1069 (1999). Moreover, the companionship, care, custody, and
management of a parent over his or her child is an interest far more precious
than any property right, May v. Anderson, 345 U.S. 528, 533, (1952). As
such, the parent-child relationship is an important interest that undeniably
warrants deference and, absent a powerful countervailing interest, protection,
Lassiter v. Department of Social Services, 452 U.S. 18, 27 (1981).

3.

The divorce court is run for the ease and egos of judges and to
maximize the money lawyers make by separating the parties and
causing as much fighting as possible. The best interests of the children
and families is a distant third priority. Family court judges consider their time
far more important than justice. In fact, lunch is often more important than
justice to them and they have been known to walk out of hearings without
warning when the stomach calls. They fall asleep on the bench and have even
been caught masturbating during a trial! Do you know of any other industry
where 20, 30 or even 50 people at $250 per hour stand around waiting for
their turn while smiling and doing nothing for their clients?! This happens
every morning in family courts. This would be considered fraud in most
industries especially since many are billing two and three clients for the same
time while waiting! THIS IS FRAUD PLAIN AND SIMPLE!

4.

Family court judges do not care what the law says and will do
whatever they want because they have legislated themselves near total
immunity. You only have the rights you know and demand and show you are
willing to fight for by calling that judge to task with hard evidence, case law
citations, judicial complaints (a near waste of time since the foxes are
watching the hen house), and suits in federal court.

5.

The U.S. Constitution, U.S. Supreme Court, and State Constitutions


trump any lower laws. This is the law of supremacy. Ignoring these
higher laws is technically treason against the U.S. government by a judge
and a violation of their oath of office. Under the constitution no state is
allowed to make any law that takes away fundamental constitutional rights of
we the people and there is enough Supreme Court case law to choke a
horse on parental rights.

Expect justice, fairness, logic, sympathy, or compassion in the family


courts
Hire or pay for a GAL (Guardian Ad Litem or childs attorney)
Pay an opposing attorney and fees
Voluntarily leave the marital home
Ask DSS or any other government people to be involved
Expect judges and lawyers to be honest
Ever sign any agreement in your divorce settlement. Make the judge
force it on you as an order. If you sign an agreement you will not be able to
take advantage of shared parenting and other progress in laws when they
become effective. You have waived your rights by signing a contract

Ever give up on your children. They need you. Their development


will be stunted if they are denied their father

Do:










Expect to be treated like a criminal,


but without the legal protections of one
Attend a local Fatherhood Coalition
chapter meeting or other support
group
Educate yourself Take the Pro Se
course offered by LBU (see appendix)
Fire your lawyer (take the profit out of
harming children)
Use a stenographer in court, witnesses (friends or fellow fathers),
and/or a court watcher to document all hearings
Speak out about any injustice you receive as much as possible - we
must spread the word on this cruel abuse of children and fathers
Have a paternity test
Donate $5, $10 or what you can afford to support family court
reform

The 14th Amendment of the constitution of the United States (extract) Section. 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the
jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they
reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or
immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of
life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its
jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Know your rights. If you do not demand your rights,


you have NO RIGHTS! It is that simple!

6.

Under the U.S. Constitution, you have the right to a jury trial in any
matter worth over $20 in Superior Court. The family court system has
illegally usurped and ignored this right for decades even though our children,
home, and future income is all at state and worth millions of dollars by any
measure. Erosions of these rights by judges are not lawful under the
constitution.

7.

TITLE 28--JUDICIARY AND JUDICIAL PROCEDURE PART I--ORGANIZATION OF


COURTS CHAPTER 21--GENERAL PROVISIONS APPLICABLE TO COURTS AND
JUDGES Sec. 453. Oaths of justices and judges. Each justice or judge of the
United States shall take the following oath or affirmation before performing
the duties of his office: ``I, ___ ___, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will
administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor
and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform
all the duties incumbent upon me as __X_ under the Constitution and
laws of the United States. So help me God.'' Therefore family court judges
break their oath of office and literally commit treason against the U.S. each
time they ignore these higher laws of the land.

8.

9.

A political process appoints judges in Massachusetts, and many other


states, and there are little qualifications for being a judge other than
knowing the right people. Judges have a cozy relationship with legal bars,
insurance companies, and others who appoint them, which create patronage
in the form of throwing business their way via special masters and other
high-priced and unnecessary legal work.
The federal courts have been ignoring this abuse for decades as they
consider it a can of worms and allow the states to constantly violate
the constitution. Our federal government is sleeping. Many federal suits
have been thrown out under the so-called Rooker-Feldman doctrine and
other lame excuses. Class actions have been filed in all 50 states and are now
being filed by county where less immunity is available.
CUSTODY AND VISITATION

10. Visitation arrangements are harmful


to children. Common sense would tell you
bringing up children with 86% female
influence and 14% male influence would be
bad. Scientific research has now proven
this. When children go out in the real world
with this limited perspective, they fail.
11. Shared parenting has been
scientifically proven to be, by far, the
best situation for children of divorce!
Not better by 20% or 50% but by a factor
of 20 or more by many measures (see
appendix). Anyone who says otherwise is either a liar or totally ignorant of
the facts. Unless your children have near-equal exposure to both their father
and mother, they will have huge problems. A step-parent is no substitute for
you (read Father and Child Reunion by Dr. Warren Farrell which compiled
over 200 of the best studies).
12. Men cannot win custody, or even get equal time with their children,
without showing that a wife is totally unfit. This is clear
discrimination based on sex and is illegal under the highest laws. This
Free to Copy and Distribute

Page 7

seems to require proof of massive abuse of the children or drugs. We must


change the system with shared parenting, which has been scientifically
proven best for children, (and equal visitation) as the first step. Every child
has a right to their biological father and every father has the equal right to
raise their children.
13. 86% of Massachusettss voters in several districts voted for shared
parenting in a nonbinding referendum, requiring equal rights for both
parents after divorce. Many bills are before the state legislators for shared
parenting. Many other states and countries strongly support (or have even
passed laws in support of) shared parenting.
14. Judges appear to be totally ignorant of the benefits of shared
parenting. Or maybe judges do not want shared parenting because their
attorney friends would not be able to cause the large number of custody
battles and bleed the divorcing couples estate. Judges often award custody
exactly backwards from what is scientifically proven to be the best order by
granting the mother physical custody and the father visitation in the vast
majority of cases. We now know for a fact that shared parenting is by far the
best arrangement and interestingly also that the father with primary custody
is second best. The mother as custodial parent and father with visitation is
the worst of these choices as proven by decades of scientific study.
15. Fathers teach children things mothers generally cant. These things are
required to be successful in life. Risk taking, physical skills, teamwork, and
empathy (counter-intuitively) are just a few proven examples. When a
mother denies their children access to their father, she is committing the
worst kind of child abuse and setting them up for many problems in life.
Mother nature knows best and mother nature requires two parents.
16. Mothers often covet children due to fear of economic loss, low selfesteem, and for malicious revenge. They see the children as their
economic security and deny fathers custody to get large amounts of child
support. Today this child extortion often amounts to four or five times the
actual cost of raising the child and has become ex-wife welfare or politically
correct alimony. It encourages mothers to be unproductive and live off their
ex-husband. Generally, mothers can have a much higher standard of living
working very little and fathers are often placed in poverty by current child
support levels.
17. When Shared Parenting is implemented, much of the bureaucracy,
child support collections, and many divorce attorneys will go away!
There will be far fewer custody battles because more parents will share
children equally, greatly reducing the need for child support payments that
put one parent in poverty for the benefit of the other. Therefore the only
people you find resisting shared parenting are lawyers, judges and radical
feminists who want unequal rights.
18. Never hire or agree to pay for a Guardian Ad Litem. The law says the
court/state (MA) must pay if the state appoints one. A memo from a
judge in Mass. (not the law) says you should pay. This is an attempt at
legislating from the bench and is not legal. Of course, if you agree to pay, you
have made a legal commitment. This is just another way to extract money
from divorcing families. GALs are generally not qualified to say anything,
never mind exceed the care and knowledge of the parents who raised these
children. The whole idea is generally about collecting hearsay, which is
absurd.

19. State judicial branches received BILLIONS of dollars in kickbacks


from the federal government for increasing child support each year
and the state DOR ALSO gets a percentage of all child support. As a result,
every judge has a conflict of interest in determining child support awards.
Payments between the three branches of government (executive, judicial and
legislative) were made illegal by the framers of the constitution for this
reason.
20. In child support hearings, the
precedent (Flaherty v. Flaherty Mass
Appeals Court) states that it is the
opposition's side (burden of proof on
them) to prove you actually have
some claimed income amount; it is
not yours to prove otherwise (as proving
a negative is impossible). They should not
go outside the guidelines on this when
you have no income either. If you are
really earning $0, cite this federal law
(see #24) and say you believe the order
to be unlawful. Your attorney, of course,
should know all this but most are
spineless and will not go up against the
judges desire in spite of the fact that this
screws you, their client. After all, family law attorneys need to face these
judges day-in and day-out. They are their co-workers; you are a temporary
client.

Submit evidence that requires your judge to award joint


custody and shared parenting because it is clearly in the
best interest of your child
Debunk that mother custody is best for children
Leverage over 200 scientific studies
Avoid sexist and damaging custody orders

The video explains why it is now 100% clear scientific fact


that shared parenting, with equal time and custody for both
parents, is by far the best for children not by 10% or 50%,
but by some measures by a factor of 20. Judges are living in
the dark ages and are ruling based on sexist traditions; not
reality, facts, or science. Dont let your childrens lives be
ruined divorce or by lazy and ignorant judges. Know the
facts so you can help them be successful in life.
Force your judge to watch this at trial by submitting this as
evidence and you will not only help yourself but many other
parents and children coming behind you.

As long as the government is perceived as working


for the benefit of the children, the people will happily
endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost
any deprivation."

Dr. Warren Farrell is one of the worlds top experts on what is


REALLY best for children of divorce. He spent 13 years gathering,
reviewing, and compiling over 200 scientific research studies on
children of divorce. He is the author of seven books including
Father and Child Reunion and Why Men are the way they are. He
has appeared on over 1,000 TV and radio shows, and has been
interviewed frequently by Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Walters, Larry
King and Peter Jennings. He has been featured repeatedly on 20/20
and in The New York Times, People Magazine, and in men's journals,
The Wall Street Journal, and on the Today Show, the Tomorrow

21. The inability to pay any monetary amount, child support or anything
else, is a complete defense against all contempt charges. Debtor
prisons have been outlawed. Any judge that locks you up for contempt when
you have no ability to pay is liable. They do not have this right. You should
present the proper case law references in a memorandum of law. Impossible
orders are also unlawful. When they impute income you do not have without
proof they are acting illegally in several ways. See www.FathersUnite.org
Free Templates section. You also have the right to be declared indigent and
pay the minimum. If you are jailed under the child support exception for a
civil debt then there must be a purge amount set and this payment will get
you released immediately. You also must be released if you have no ability to
pay. This only makes sense, because you cannot earn this money in prison,
so anything else would effectively amount to prison for life for being a few
thousand behind on child support because your child support continues to
accrue while you are sitting in jail with murderers. Interestingly, in

Massachusetts, with overcrowding they release accused murderers, but


cannot release divorced fathers who are in jail for being behind on child
support! These men cant even get earned time for good behavior. Yes,
convicted criminals and murderers held without bail literally have rights that
have been legislated away for divorced fathers!!

27. Today men are guilty of domestic violence until proven innocent due
to decades of propaganda by minority radical feminist groups. They have
created mass hysteria and have institutionalized this in law enforcement,
courts and the media with government funded training programs. Often
statistics are exaggerated by a factor of 100 or more by these people with a
self-interest in growing the divorce and domestic violence industry and
stripping men of their natural and constitutional right.

22. Today there are over 60,000


government employees tracking
parents (mostly fathers) of
divorce. This is 13 times more than
the number of drug enforcement
agents! $1,000 is spent to discipline
dads for each $1 to discipline moms.
Yet fathers pay child support far
more often and completely than
mothers. They are after you: Follow
the money.
23. The garnishment of retirement benefits is prohibited by the Social
Security Act, 49 Stat. 620, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 407 (1982 ed.); the
Railroad Retirement Act, as amended, 47 Stat. 438, 45 U.S.C. 231m(a) (1982
ed., Supp. V); the Civil Service Retirement Act, 5 U.S.C. 8346(a); and the
Veterans' Benefits Act, 38 U.S.C. 3101(a) (1982 ed.). See also:
http://www.fathersunite.org/RetirementBenefits.htm
24. What is the maximum amount that they can take out for arrearages in
child support under the law? ANSWER: The answer is provided in 15 USCS
1673. Although most creditors can only take 25% of your disposable
earnings, child support is divided into three categories: 1. If you are
supporting others, no more than 50% of your income. 2. If you are not
supporting others, no more than 60% of your disposable income, unless
arrears are more than 12 weeks, which it can go up to 65% of your
disposable income. Disposable income certainly includes income only after
taxes and social security are removed.
25. Alimony is an obsolete concept in a country where women have equal
earning power and the children are in school. Alimony is hidden in
outrageous child support amounts at about 40% of take-home pay for two
children. The percentage of income calculation method, versus actual cost
of raising a child makes no sense at all except for the government that gets a
percentage and women who live of their ex-husbands hard labor. This is a
form of slavery (peonage) in disguise and most of child support is simply
alimony in disguise.


RESTRAINING ORDERS
26. Restraining orders and false allegations are the weapon of choice for
attorneys for soon to be ex-wives. According to the Justice Department,
two million restraining orders are issued each year in the United States, most
of them based on allegations of domestic violence. By getting these oftenillegal orders, fathers are put at an economic and emotional disadvantage and
lawyers can sling mud at them every time they appear in court, as if they
Free to Copy and Distribute

actually did something when usually they have not. Lawyers, and paralegals
in women's shelters, call them "The Silver Bullet". False abuse allegations
work effectively in removing men from their families, homes and income. The
impact that the removal of these fathers has on our children is horrific (see
appendix).

Page 11

28. Think about getting a restraining order against her first if there are
sufficient grounds. Although men do not generally think this way (as a
victim) there are certainly plenty of recent examples of predatory females in
the news who killed their spouse and disposed of the body, etc. The domestic
violence INDUSTRY is a $25 billion for-profit monster that promotes victim
mentality to deny men their rights in favor of women. We already have laws
against assault and battery. Why should there be special one-sided laws for
sexist reasons? If she gets a restraining order first, you are immediately
suspect and at a disadvantage (as stupid as this is) and when you both have
one they may cancel each other out a bit.
29. Many unscrupulous judges
(not just family court
judges) issue restraining
orders illegally to any
woman who says the word
fear when nothing has
ever happened or even
been threatened. This takes
only a 2-minute hearing (exparte = without you there).
Most often these are both
unconstitutional and against
Massachusetts case law that
requires the fear be
reasonable and proven. Generally judges ignore these requirements. In
fact any spectral evidence, which is evidence that is only inside the mind of
a person has been inadmissible in a court of law since the Salem Witch Trials.
The fear card, played again and again in the media, is todays version of
this mass hysteria. This is caused by a judges fear of the media and feminist
backlash. They basically decide NOT to judge for their own self-interest, which
is a violation of their oath.
30. Lawyers admit (in private) that between 50% and 95% of restraining
orders should NOT have been issued. Massachusetts has issued as many
as 40,000 in a single year while other states that respect peoples rights issue
about 3% of this amount per capita. Lawyers love them because they cause
more fighting and more legal fees at the outset and make it easy to keep the
parties apart so no settlement is reached.
31. Restraining orders have been abused for decades because politicians
(mostly lawyers also) get money and support from extreme feminists
groups, which get BILLIONS in federal funding through the Violence
Free to Copy and Distribute

Page 12

Against Womens Act (VAWA). There is no counter balancing mens lobby


group, so for politicians supporting domestic violence is like kissing babies.
It has no downside and gets them funding and votes. What is lost in the
media is that these restraining orders are abusive to men far more often than
they protect anyone. In fact some studies claim this abuse of these orders
actually causes more violence, suicides and abuse than they prevent. The
most important constitutional rights to their children, property, home, income
and even friends are stripped away as soon as a woman says the word fear.
Studies also show these orders are granted mainly to woman and very rarely
to men, even though nearly half of reported serious domestic violence is
committed by women. And dont you think more men would be embarrassed
to report this?
32. In the initial stages of divorce involving children, it is common
practice for lawyers to counsel the women to get a restraining order.
This applies to ALL men, even to the vast majority of men who are nonviolent and with no history of ill-behavior, whatsoever. While interviewing
fathers, it seems as though lawyers follow a common template when
recommending what women should say in their filing and to the judge.
Bottom line: If you are about to go to court for custody/visitation, plan your
defense ahead of time for you will very likely be served with a frivolous
restraining order before the court battles begin. From this point on, you will
fight an uphill battle for the remainder of your children's lives.

35. In any restraining order hearing for renewal, the plaintiff must make
the entire case again from the very start and show the need for a
restraining order. Again, if due process has been denied, the order is null
and void with no legal effect or force. A plaintiff seeking an initial domestic
abuse prevention order on the basis of abuse must show that he or she is
currently in fear of imminent serious physical harm, as well as that the fear is
reasonable, M.G.L.A. c. 209A, 1(b). An initial domestic abuse prevention
order expires unless extended after a judicial determination (essentially, a
new finding) that the plaintiff continues to require protection from abuse.
When a person seeks to prove abuse by "fear of imminent serious physical
harm, case law requires that the fear be reasonable. See Commonwealth v.
Gordon, 407 Mass. 340, 349-350, 553 N.E.2d 915 (1990) From Iamele v.
Asselin 444 Mass. 734.
36. A court lacks jurisdiction anytime it denies you the Bill of Rights or
amendments, particularly Due Process. Any judges orders issued
under these conditions are VOID! In FACT many 209A's are invalid by
denial of Due Process evidentiary hearings. VOIDNESS is a very powerful tool,
and certainly makes any judgment attackable when due process is denied,
property taken, no cross exam of witnesses/accusers is permitted etc. Your
lawyer will not argue this, as it requires the judge to do the right things that
they avoid daily. You must argue it yourself! In other words, judges
knowingly and repeatedly issue unlawful orders to save time and
intimidate men. The emperors are wearing no clothes!
37. It is completely against the Fourteen amendment of the U.S.
Constitution to discriminate based on sex, or create classes of people
that are discriminated against, yet family courts create a class called
non-custodial parent for this purpose. With immunity, these courts illegally
strip parents (mostly fathers) of their natural, Godgiven, and constitutional
right to parent their own children.

33. It is generally economically impossible to win against your wife when


she gets a restraining order throwing you out of the house PLUS child
support. When you are ordered to pay for the house she is living in (50% of
your take-home pay normally) plus 40% of your take-home pay (at 26% of
gross) for child support equals a total of 90% of your income going to your
soon to be ex-wife! You get 10% or $357 per month to live on if you make
$50,000 per year. For every dollar you have for spending (before you pay for
housing) your wife has $4 (after her house is paid for by you). All wars are
wars of attrition of resources you must be pro se (something judges
despise). The state forces men to become criminals to survive. They must
hide income and earn under the table just to afford food. Judges do not care
some are on a power trip and crush men for the benefit of women under the
rationalization that this is in the best interest of the children and they are
heroes. They are CAUSING one of the largest problems of society today
fatherlessness (see appendix).
34. When a restraining order is issued, if you asked for the right to
question your wife and if this request was not allowed, then the
restraining order is null and void for lack of due process. It has no legal
effect or force and you cannot be legally prosecuted for violating it (see
Free to Copy and Distribute

www.FathersUnite.org). The burden of proof of voidness is on you though,


so get that tape at the courthouse. Transcribe it and keep it in a safe place.
Be prepared to place this into the record to prove the order is a void one.
Tapes have been known to disappear and be doctored by the courts.

38. Women are statistically FOUR TIMES more likely to badmouth dad to
the children (proven harmful to kids) yet judges believe the reverse and
issue gag orders on men mainly believing in stereotype, not facts.
39. About 300 fathers of divorce commit suicide each month, 11 times as
many as women. What does this say about our system?

COURT RULES AND CIVIL PROCEDURE YOU MUST KNOW


40. When judges deny proper due process, any order they issue is null
and void with no legal effect or force. Whenever they refuse to hear
witnesses, evidence, or testimony and do not abide by proper notice
procedures or other due process requirements, their orders are void.
41. Article VI, Paragraph 2 of the United States Constitution is known as the
Supremacy Clause: "This Constitution, and the laws of the United States
which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which
shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be Supreme
Free to Copy and Distribute

Page 14

Law of the land; and the Judges in every state shall be bound thereby,
anything in the Constitution, or Laws of any state to the contrary
notwithstanding." The Supremacy Clause establishes the Constitution,
Federal Statutes, and U.S. treaties as "the supreme law of the land." The
Constitution is the highest form of law in the American legal system. State
judges are required to uphold it, even if state laws or Constitutions conflict
with it.
42. Divorce courts run on hearsay, innuendo, and lies. They are
"kangaroo courts" that base their decisions on things not even
allowed in real courts of law. Lawyers repeat what the women say for
them making no one liable for perjury. Judges will believe this dribble over
what you say by choice. Yes, it is that bad. Therefore, always insist on an
Evidentiary Hearing. If you are not sworn in, then it is not an evidentiary
hearing. When you do this, you have the right to question witnesses and the
opposing counsel has this right, too but the opposing counsel can NEVER
testify to facts and only ask questions and handle procedural issues. Object
any time opposing counsel tries to provide testimony.
43. Judges are not allowed to make suggestions or lead either attorney.
This is called practicing law from the bench and shows bias. Their only jobs
are to: 1) Determine the facts (which they often farm out to the attorney on
your dime) and 2) Apply the law (ditto). Yet, family court judges also ignore
this at will, often breaking this law too.
44. You must file motions 10 days in advance by mail, seven days by hand
for proper notice. If the other side does not do this, there is no proper
notice and hence, no due process. So any order resulting will be void. Insist
on your rights. Mail your notices on Saturday after the mail pickup and before
midnight for a Tuesday hearing. This gives the other side the minimum legal
notice, as there are two weekends in the 10-day notice period plus mail time.
45. Lawyers are officers of the court first and their responsibility to you
is secondary. They are required to disclose all relevant information to the
court and the myth of client confidentiality takes a back seat.
46. Always ask for a finding of facts after each hearing to document
what has happened. Judges in equity courts are required to provide these
within 60 days.
47. A valid pre or postnuptial agreement may not be altered by a judge
(Korff v. Korff Mass. 2005 Mass. Appeals Court). Judges may pretend
they can line item veto a pre- or post-nuptial agreement but they cannot. All
adults have the right to contract, and any fair and mutually agreed agreement
is binding on all parties as long as there was proper disclosure and each party
had its own legal representation.
48. If a judge tries to arrest you for contempt, ask: A) Is it Civil or
Criminal? B) Who is the injured party? C) May I see the contract? If
Civil and no contract can be produced, then it is a felony to arrest
you! People go to jail every day because they do not know this and judges
intimidate people into doing what they want this way. Judges have become
leg breakers to intimidate men into impossible child support orders so
judges get federal kickbacks for their staff.
49. Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242 Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law
U.S. Code: Title 18 : Section 242 This statute makes it a crime for any
person acting under color of law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom to
Free to Copy and Distribute

Page 15

willfully deprive or cause to be deprived from any person those rights,


privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution and laws of
the U.S. This law further prohibits a person acting under color of law, statute,
ordinance, regulation, or custom to willfully subject or cause to be subjected
any person to different punishments, pains, or penalties, than those
prescribed for punishment of citizens on account of such person being an
alien or by reason of his/her color or race. Acts under "color of any law"
include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the
bounds or limits of their lawful authority, but also acts done without and
beyond the bounds of their lawful authority; provided that, in order for
unlawful acts of any official to be done under "color of any law, the unlawful
acts must be done while such official is purporting or pretending to act in the
performance of his/her official duties. This definition includes, in addition to
law enforcement officials, individuals such as Mayors, Council persons,
Judges, Nursing Home Proprietors, Security Guards, etc., persons who are
bound by laws, statutes ordinances, or customs.
50. Only by being Pro Se (representing yourself) or Sui Juris (being
yourself) in divorce court can you get some of your rights (maybe),
and this is a very timeconsuming, educational process, which robs
you of your time and income. You must take the time to educate yourself.
Remember, though, this legal battle will almost never end. The wife will be
bringing you back to court for up to 23 years to adjust child support and
move the bar further against you. If you dont pay legal fees and she does,
then you have a chance of some leverage. You really have no choice but to
learn the law and your rights well unless you are a multi-millionaire and do
not care about making lawyers rich to destroy your family relationships.
51. The Writ of Habeas Corpus is commonly called "The Great Writ". It comes
to us from the Magna Carta and is also commonly referred to as "the poor
man's lawyer". It is actually a "complaint" at law, and embodies a demand to
"Show Cause" for the Respondents, in this case, the government, to answer
each and every issue contained in it. Thus, it is intended to force the State to
answer why the superior law (federal stare decisis under the Supremacy
Clause) does not override their State's claims. Complete form is available at
www.FathersUnite.org just search on Habeas.
52. If you cannot afford court fees and expenses for appeals and other matters,
you should file as indigent and the state is required to waive these fees.
53. It IS completely legal to audio and/or videotape court proceedings. In
fact the Supreme Court has held that virtually all court proceedings should be
made public to insure integrity of the courts. Individuals and the press both
have equal rights of access to court information. Do not confuse self-interestdriven local court policies with the law. Generally, in most states, recording is
legal with disclosure or if there is no expectation of privacy. However, Chief
Justices issue memos with policies banning tape recorders and videotaping to
hide their constant illegal actions. This is called legislation by memo and is
not legally binding on anyone. Some judges are known to signal the clerk to
turn off the tape (or even have their own switch) this is completely illegal.
They can then abuse the people and the law without any record of that abuse.
Bring a recorder, court reporter, stenographer or witnesses to take notes.

ABUSE OF POWER AND LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY


54. Judges are considered immune from most lawsuits, even when they
intentionally commit fraud and other unethical behavior, but they are
NOT! (see www.Jail4Judges.org) Their orders are always void if they do not
provide proper due process and they are liable when acting under color of
law without this due process that affords jurisdiction (see below).
55. As a direct result of the lack of
accountability, family court
judges are the most egotistical
and arrogant people you will
ever meet. They are erroneously
conditioned over time by their
position to believe everything they
do is right and legal by being
treated like kings and having no
oversight whatsoever. In fact, it
seems they get worse over time,
instead of better due to this
phenomenon. So few people know their rights, and lawyers will NOT point out
violations of those rights for fear of the judges. Judges get away with murder
every day. Unlike most jobs, they have no feedback system to monitor,
understand, and improve. No oversight and accountability means power
corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely takes over.
56. BASICALLY FAMILY COURT JUDGES ARE THE MOST PROLIFIC
CRIMINALS YOU WILL EVER MEET. They seem to break the law with
immunity about every 5-10 minutes on the bench.
57. Lawyers want custody battles to drive a $3,000 divorce to a $100,000
divorce when the couple has assets to pay. This profession attracts
mercenaries with no morals. Stories of two attorneys sitting down and talking
about how much they can take this couple for abound.
58. The first thing lawyers want to know when you interview them about
representing you in a divorce is what are your assets? This is because
they want to know how much they can bleed from you in the process. Many
go by the 40% rule meaning they want to take 40% of your estate (net
worth) along the way before any settlement is reached. For example: One
person with a prenup has already spent over $600,000, and the prenup that
should have simplified the process and it is still going . . . Why because he is
the target of lawyers as a deep pocketed person. You will get "serviced"
along the way until you are out of money fighting for your children and
decades of future income. Then they will allow a settlement to occur, which
you could have done in the first place without their help. Amazing how rich
people fight for long periods of time and poor people reach a settlement
quickly, even on the children, because the lawyers cannot rape them
financially. Attorneys will do everything possible to stir up the battle and see
that the couple fights like cats and dogs until they have bled your familys
estate.
59. The family court and divorce lawyers are in the BUSINESS of leading
men to slaughter and are in a conspiracy of silence with the judges, courtappointed GALs, psychologists, and other hangers-on that make their
outrageous livings off the misery of divorcing families. What is ironic is most

Free to Copy and Distribute

Page 17

do not enforce or respect the law in any way and are in fact breaking the law
and their oath to improve the system daily.
60. The vast majority of divorce attorneys will not fight for a fathers
rights. They are too worried about upsetting the judges because they will be
in front of that judge again and again long after you are sucked of all possible
cash and assets to pay for their legal fees.
61. DSS, child services, and other government officials have been known
to abuse their authority and lie to obtain access to fathers' homes to
gather evidence against them. They are in the business of taking children
and sometimes get $5,000/month for each child in their care. When
someone comes to your door, whether it is the police, CPS, or the dogcatcher,
they are REQUIRED BY LAW to have a valid warrant to gain entry to your
home - your castle inviolate. DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR. Mind you they are all
good liars. They will say they don't need a warrant. They lie. They will say
they can get a warrant - if they could, they already would have. DO NOT
OPEN THE DOOR. Make them hold their warrant up for you to see at a
window. Next, a piece of paper signed by a judge does not make something a
legal warrant. It is "The Law" that makes it legal. A warrant must have a
"real complainant" - a real person who swears, under oath, that they saw a
crime committed. A "government agent" is not a "real person," unless they
personally saw a crime committed. Their "suspicions" or some "anonymous tip
from an anonymous caller" are NOT legal cause for a warrant. Even if a judge
did sign it, it is still an illegal warrant. DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR. If they kick
your door in, using an illegal warrant, you have the law on your side next
time in court. You can sue for significant damages and penalties.


CHILD ABUSE IS MORE COMMON BY MOTHERS THAN DADS
62. Single moms are statistically twenty-four times (YES 24X) more
likely to kill their children than single dads (third national Incidence
Study of Child Abuse 1997). Children are 88% more likely to be seriously
injured from child abuse or neglect by their mothers than by their fathers
(ditto). Single mother households account for 43% of all abused children.
63. Ninety-four percent of those who made false accusations were
women and 96% of those falsely accused were men (Hollida Wakefield
and Underwager). Of the 2.6 million reports of child abuse and neglect, 66%
were unconfirmed, but NOT RETURNED to the family.
64. Eighty percent of child sex-abuse accusations are determined to be
unfounded. In Florida, 92% of child abuse cases (after an initial guilty
verdict) were found to be false or unsubstantiated. All 1,200 people appealing
had been listed as confirmed child abusers. There has been a 2,000%
increase in sex abuse allegations in the past ten years. Why? Follow the
money. See: http://www.ipt-forensics.com/journal/volume5/j5_2_6.htm
65. The New York University of Law School finds that the abuse laws
are written so broadly that virtually every parent is guilty of child
abuse several times each week. The U.S. Supreme court has held that any
law which is vague is not constitutional. The best interest of the children is
also a vague and subjective law which judges have no training, ability, or
even legal right to determine over parents.

66. Forty percent of mothers reported they had refused visitation to their
ex-husband to punish the father. Dont think this will not be you like you
did when you heard 50% of people get divorced. Less than 20% of men have
done this. Therefore, children are used as pawns twice as often by malicious
mothers as they inflict their cruel revenge. This is just a small part of
Parental Alienation Syndrome which hurts children enormously by denying
them good fathers for the revenge or control motives of moms.
67. Parental Alienation has become epidemic. Research parental alienation
and act appropriately at the first signs (refusing visits, asking the child if they
want to see their father, scheduling fun activities during visitation time and
making the child choose between the two are but three of many examples).
If you don't, as so many fathers have not (or simply have done too late),
don't be surprised when your child, who once
rushed into your arms with glee, now refuses to
see you saying they fear or hate you.
68. When shared parenting is implemented, the
divorce rate drops within a few years. The
state has created such an incentive for women to
divorce with outlandish child support and terms
that it is now actually creating the divorce market.
69. One person was told by Gail Perlman before
she became a judge in Northampton that,
When people get divorced, they turn their children over to the state,
and the state does what is best for the child. Therefore, in these state
actors minds, your children become wards of the state and the judges can do
anything they want to you, your spouse and your children, and even your
property because you are getting divorced. In the minds of the judiciary, you
have no parental rights in divorce. You get only what they condescendingly
grant you and then they obligate you to pay for that which they have
created. Effectively, this is the attitude of all family court judges as shown by
their actions, though most will never admit this level of abuse of power, bias,
and unconstitutional practices.


MORE ON THE LACK OF JUSTICE IN FAMILY COURTS
70. Family courts think that if you have a penis you are not to be trusted
and must only just be trying to minimize your child support. And yet,
most every father cares only about having a real relationship with their
children (as opposed to minor visitation) and pays child support willingly. If
you have a uterus, everything said must be true and only the "childrens best
interest" is in mind. A judge can simply say I do not believe you, or You
have no credibility and then proceed to ignore everything you have said,
shown or even proven with hard evidence and do whatever the judge wants.
This is not justice. It is by definition tyranny -exactly what the framers of the
U.S. Constitution tried to avoid and what caused the U.S. to separate from
the rule of English kings.
71. Anything said in court that is NOT denied by the other party should be
considered fact by the judge. Judges ignore this when it suits them for

Free to Copy and Distribute

Page 19

their personal and sexist agenda.

"It is sad comment that the public is so uneducated,


unconcerned, and blinded to the TRUTH by the media,
and that the Judiciary of our once great Nation has been
allowed to sink to these depths. And while I say that the
conditions that exist today can be laid at one doorstep,
that of the Judiciary, I must ultimately say that the fault
really lies at our feet, We the People, for it is We the
People who have allowed the foxes to guard the
henhouse."
-- Robert H. Bork, Judge, Supreme Court Nominee,
and Professor of Law

72. Judges have their butts kissed so much all day long by lawyers that
speaking up for your rights juxtaposes you against these complicit
unethical whores. You look like a jerk to them just because you are
fighting for your children. You look like a jerk to them just for insisting on
your rights as a parent and citizen. Any right you do not insist on will be
thrown away without you even knowing it and even your lawyer will
cooperate to do this.
73. Lawyers use the promise of more money to bait women and to
separate the couple as much as possible. Many will not even respond to
attempts to settle the case. This would stop their money train. Anyone knows
that good communications can create a settlement. So they shut down
communications completely to insure no early settlement. This is the last
thing the lawyers want until you have run out of money to pay them. This is
no different than a car mechanic that puts your car up on the lift for a look,
then intentionally breaks a part and brings it to you in the waiting room to
say you will need another one of these $500 items. This is fraud, plain and
simple! Divorce lawyers do this every day to maximize their fees. They
rationalize it in their own minds as winning many ways, but they ignore the
fact that you are often paying many times the cost to them of the win. They
also conveniently forget the huge emotional toll and damage to your family
caused by their greed.
74. Divorce lawyers are, by definition, ethical whores. They argue the
side that pays them without regard to what is right or wrong. The very
foundation of the judicial system was made adversarial to protect the rights of
We the people in criminal prosecutions. The American system is designed
to let 10 people go rather than convict one innocent person on the belief they
will be caught again if they are guilty anyway. An adversarial system is
ridiculous for divorce, but lawyers make too much money to improve it, even
though they take an oath to improve the system. Their job is to win, not do
what is right or what is best for children or their client long-term. In fact, they
use this as the excuse to rape the client financially without regard to the
damage this does to the familys relationships.
75. Never, never, ever pay a single dime of your spouses legal fees under
any condition. These are civil debts. Even when you are ordered to pay by
the judge, DO NOT DO IT. You are funding your own demise. This lawyer not
getting paid will do more to get a settlement that is fair than anything else

Page 20

you can imagine. Make it clear in advance to them you will not pay. In theory
you cannot be held in contempt for not paying them legally but judges do this
all the time. A lawyer must pursue all the usually civil process actions against
you, and likely will not because it is financially better for him to move on to
the next sucker than taking a chance on collecting from you. These orders are
generally illegal or void anyway in a civil debt. If there is no contract
between you and them, collection is very difficult. Request a full evidentiary
hearing on any such request or motion as generally every person must pay
their own legal fees. This is just another way that fathers are abused and
buried by this system. No wonder there are over 300 suicides of dads in
divorce per month.
76. Ignorance of the law is no defense for any ordinary person, but it is
for any judge or lawyer. (How ironic is that?!) We regular people can be
held accountable to all laws without any knowledge and those who work at
the law full-time are immune from knowing anything. How outrageous,
corrupt, and fixed is this system!? You cant possibly imagine!
77. Judges often just copy and paste the proposed findings from the
female attorneys submission and ignore the possibly more accurate version
of the facts from the mans attorney. In fact, a judges only job is to find
these facts and apply the law. So how come attorneys, on our nickel, with a
bias against one side, are doing this job? Can they really keep the facts of
hundreds of cases in their heads? Of course not!
78. Your wife will have no incentive to settle, or even be reasonable,
unless you are pro se because she is paying legal fees and you are
not. Her attorney will tell her that she will be awarded physical custody, child
support that represents 40% (for 2 children) of your take-home pay, the
house, and the majority of your estate and maybe even her legal bills!
79. Women can lie like rugs in court and no one cares. They want to take a
womans word at face value, unless you are able to provide hard evidence
that they are lying. Even then they make every effort to not allow your
evidence, disqualify, or discount it if it does not meet the judges
predetermined agenda to award custody to the woman. As far as we can tell,
no women has ever been prosecuted for perjury in family court. Many say
that a lot of lawyers even encourage women to lie by spelling out the benefits
of saying certain things.
80. All schools are now required to provide non-custodial parents
separate copies and notifications of school records. This was not being
done and was already against federal law when the federal government
required Massachusetts to comply immediately. Write a letter to the school
principal referencing: Mass. General Laws. Chapter 71 and demand your
rights. The only excuse for not doing this is that there is a restraining order
allegedly protecting your kids from you. See appendix for relevant text.

83. From the Mass. Supreme Judicial Court Rules: Judicial proceedings
should not be shrouded in secrecy." Access fosters informed public
discussion of governmental affairs. "It is desirable that the trial of cases
should take place under the public eye, not because the controversies of one
citizen with another are of public concern, but because it is of the highest
moment that those who administer justice should always act under the sense
of public responsibility, and that every citizen should be able to satisfy himself
with his own eyes as to the mode in which a public duty is performed."
Cowley v. Pulsifer, 137 Mass. 392, 394 (1884) (Holmes, J.). Only the most
compelling reasons justify the closure of judicial proceedings or the
nondisclosure of judicial records. Access to judicial records and proceedings
shall not be restricted to any class or group of persons. (1) The media's right
of access to judicial proceedings and records derives entirely from the public's
right of access. The media has neither a greater nor a lesser right to be
present than any other member of the public. (2)
84. Many police departments have unlawful and discriminatory standing
policies to arrest the man even though nearly half of domestic
violence and disputes are started by female aggressors. Men are
prosecuted in court and women are excused as somehow unable to cause
harm. Yet women are killing children twenty-four times more often than men.
Yet women are killing men and mutilating their bodies. Women are
committing statutory rape and getting off, when any man would be locked up
for many years.
85. No man in their right mind who really understands this corrupt
divorce system would ever get married in Massachusetts. It is the
equivalent of playing Russian Roulette with three bullets in the
cylinder. The sad fact is you cannot ever win your case. They make the
rules and break them at will when it is to their benefit, yet enforce them
against men. However, we can change this evil system with exposure and the
public outrage that will create. Get involved.

Why is this broken system the way it is?


Money! Power! Politics! Patronage!
It is creating evil results.
Lets fix it now!

81. Unlike most states, in Massachusetts, fathers are forced to pay


college costs and child support until 23 years of age. Other state
superior courts have held this is illegal discrimination against divorced
parents, as married parents are not required to do this.
82. Some states such as Georgia, in pursuing federal kickbacks for child
support, offer employees bonuses for generating more child support
collections. In Michigan, a percentage of child support kickbacks go directly
into the judges retirement fund, creating a direct conflict of interest for every
judge in every case.

SECTION 1.
Chapter 71 of the General Laws is hereby amended in Section 34H by striking out
subsections (a), (b) and (c) and inserting in its place the following subsection:(a) Each public elementary and secondary school shall provide student records,
including but not limited to the following information, in a timely and appropriate
manner to the parents of a child enrolled in the school if the parents are eligible for
information pursuant to this section and request the information in the manner set
forth in this section: report cards and progress reports; the results of intelligence and
achievement tests; notification of a referral for a special needs assessment;
notification of enrollment in a English language learners program established under
chapter 71A; notification of absences; notification of illnesses; notification of any
detentions; suspensions or expulsion; and notification of permanent withdrawal from
school.
Each school shall also make reasonable efforts to ensure that other written information
that is provided to the custodial parent but not specified in the preceding sentence be
provided to the requesting parent if that parent is eligible for information pursuant to
this section. All electronic and postal address and telephone number information shall
be removed from information provided pursuant to this section. Receipt of this
information shall not mandate participation in any proceeding to which notification
pertains nor shall it authorize participation in proceedings and decisions regarding the
child's welfare which are not granted through the award of custody.
For purposes of this section, any parent who does not have physical custody of a child
shall be eligible for the receipt of information unless said parent is currently denied
legal custody of the child, denied visitation, or is currently ordered to supervised
visitation, based on a threat to the safety of the child , or whose access to their child is
currently restricted by a temporary or permanent protective order unless said
protective order, or any subsequent order which modifies said protective order,
specifically allows access to the information described in this section. All such
documents limiting or restricting parental access to a students records or information,
which have been provided to the school or school district, shall be placed in the
students record.

NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR CHILDREN!


ALL PROGRESS IS THE RESULT OF
UNREASONABLE MEN!

Fatherlessness is now being intentionally and


unconstitutionally created by family courts for political
and financial reasons including billions in federal
kickbacks from child support, lawyers creating custody
battles to drive up their fees, obsolete traditions and
sexual prejudice. Divorce actually goes down within a
few years of shared parenting being implemented.
Many people believe fatherlessness is the #1 root
problem in society today because of all the hidden
results it creates. The following are recent statistics
about children of divorce and separation from the newsletter Common Sense &
Domestic Violence, 1998 01 30 and other government sources.
The Impact on our Children Inter-spousal violence perpetrated by men is only a small
aspect of family violence. False abuse allegations are only a small tile in the mosaic of
vilifying the men in our society. They serve well in successful attempts to remove
fathers from the lives of our children. True domestic violence happens in only 0.5% of
all homes annually and women initiate about half of that (many say more because of
under reporting by men).
What does this mean? Children from fatherless homes are:
4.6 times more likely to commit suicide
6.6 times to become teenaged mothers (if they are girls)
24.3 times more likely to run away
15.3 times more likely to have behavioral disorders
6.3 times more likely to be in a state-operated institutions
10.8 times more likely to commit rape
6.6 times more likely to drop out of school
15.3 times more likely to end up in prison while a teenager
(The calculation of the relative risks shown in the preceding list is based on 27% of
children being in the care of single mothers.)
AND compared to children who are in the care of two biological, married parents
children who are in the care of single mothers are:
33 times more likely to be seriously abused (so that they will require medical
attention), and
73 times more likely to be killed.["Marriage: The Safest Place for Women and
Children", by Patrick F. Fagan and Kirk A. Johnson, Ph.D. Backgrounder #1535.]

Closing
Please distribute this booklet freely, as we must shine light on these
lawyers and criminals in robes that are destroying our families and
children for their personal profit and convenience. The many authors
will remain anonymous due to the fact that judges are well known to
abuse their power and ignore the law to protect their own selfinterests and the status quo that is damaging our families.
Judges are constantly breaking the highest laws of the land, including
preventing free speech and violating their oath of office to uphold the
constitution.
Please donate what you can to help distribute this information and
help save our children from this evil and greedy system that is
damaging generations of children through its ignorance and greed.

Exposing the Corruption of the
Massachusetts Family Courts
By Kevin Thompson
available at www.LuLu.com

OUR MISSION
1) Implement Shared Parenting legislation with EQUAL
RIGHTS for both parents in divorce, unless a jury trial proves
this would be harmful to the children due to a clear and proven
case of an unfit parent, or BOTH parents agree otherwise. This
means a right to equal time unless otherwise agreed.

2) Change unconstitutional, predatory and abusive


restraining order laws that use false allegations for advantage
in divorce by taking away the children, home and income of a
man whenever a woman says the word "fear" to support the
growth of the multi-billion dollar, greedy and out of control
Divorce and Domestic Violence Industry.
Father and Child Reunion
by Warren Farrell, PhD.

3) Family Court Reform including full accountability for judges,


who ignore due process, the U.S. Constitution, other laws and
their oath of office daily.
